Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts.

A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.
Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.
Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don't back down.
With me, traveling for work is arriving at the airport, checking into the hotel, leaving the hotel the next morning at 4 or 5 to do something like 'The Jimmy and Jackie Captain Crazy Morning Zoo,' doing a bunch of those in a row, then going back to the hotel, and then finally going to the club.
If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind.

Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it's hard to go back to sleep.
I look back on my life like a good day's work, it was done and I am satisfied with it.
